Did you know that there are over 80,000 synthetic chemicals in commercial products? That means that every day, we are bombarded by toxic chemicals and ingredients that could be (or rather are most likely) wreaking havoc on our bodies.
This week on Mamavation TV, we’ll be talking about practical strategies to remove the toxins from our bodies and our world as we chat with the authors of the new book Toxin Toxout: Getting Harmful Chemicals Out of Our Bodies and Our World.
